Cheap Android netbook at Kmart

Years ago, most of the Kmart stores in my part of Texas went out of business and I haven't missed them until today. An interesting new netbook has turned up at Kmart from a company called Augen that is very cheap and runs the Android operating system. If you have been dying to get a netbook with Android, this may be the cheapest way to do that.


The little rig sells for $189.99 and has a 10.2-inch TFT LCD with a resolution of 1024 x 600. The operating system is Android 2.1 and the CPU inside the little rig is an ARM11 at 800MHz. Augen crams 256MB of RAM into the machine and storage is to 2GB of internal flash with a SD card slot for expansion.

Other features include 802.11b/g WiFi and software for surfing the web, checking email, and watching video media is installed already. The device supports most media formats including AVI, XviD, and WMA among others. Power comes from a 2100mAh battery and the machine weighs 1.8 pounds. It even ships with a leather carry case.
